Paula Deen Issues Apology Over Racist Comments; Gets Fired From Food Network

Paula Deen recently confessed in a deposition that she used the N-word back in 1986. Since, she has issued a ridiculous apology that has seemingly gotten her fired from her job at the Food Network. The Huffington Post reports:

The Food Network said Friday it’s dumping Paula Deen, barely an hour after the celebrity cook posted the first of two videotaped apologies online begging forgiveness from fans and critics troubled by her admission to having used racial slurs in the past.

The 66-year-old Savannah kitchen celebrity has been swamped in controversy since court documents filed this week revealed Deen told an attorney questioning her under oath last month that she has used the N-word. “Yes, of course,” Deen said, though she added, “It’s been a very long time.”

The Food Network issued the following statement on Friday afternoon: “Food Network will not renew Paula Deen’s contract when it expires at the end of this month.”
